Maybe my expectations were too high but I didn't enjoy the S2 premiere as much as I've been enjoying re-watching S1 over the last couple days. The main reason being all of the nonsense with Elliot. Is-he-or-isn't-he-Mr-Robot was a fun little game but trying to figure out what's real and what isn't in Elliot's battle with Mr Robot felt more like a chore than an intriguing mystery. Plus, I felt like waiting for a year to find out who showed up at Elliot's door in last season's finale was worth a little bit of payoff.

I do love seeing what happens when the "revolution" becomes reality, and I think I liked just about everything that dealt with characters dealing with the consequences of their actions from last season.

All of the recent real life gun violence made the scene in the bar feel even more relevant. I had not heard of a "crisis actor" before.

2 (12 episodes, 2 more than we got last year)
-
Rami Malek -- Elliot Alderson
Portia Doubleday -- Angela Moss
Carly Chaikin -- Darlene
Michael Cristofer -- Phillip Price
Stephanie Corneliussen -- Joanna Wellick
Martin Wallström -- Tyrell Wellick
Grace Gummer -- Dominique 'Dom' DiPierro
and Christian Slater -- Mr. Robot

Nobody out from 1. Doubleday and Chaikin's billing order was the reverse last year.
Promoted up from recurring - Price and Joanna.
New - Dom.

Leon being all messed up by Seinfeld was funny.

There was a mohawked fsociety extra that looked quite a bit like BB's Paul, I thought.

Friend of mine is a talent agent in NY and has clients in this season... I think one of them is Joanna's new sex toy.

FX and USA are both allowing 'fuck' to air now... Wonder if AMC will stop doing the audio dropouts on BCSaul...

Obama and Nancy Grace impersonators sounded good.

Susan's smart house turning on her was like something out of my nightmares...

Episode 11 may end up being my favorite episode of the season. It's easily my favorite episode of the season so far, mostly because of the Twin Peaks-y nature of Angela's scenes. It still feels like Esmail is trying too hard to f**k with the audience but I enjoyed the episode, nevertheless.

It'd be nice if he gave us some satisfying answers in the finale but I'm not holding my breath.
